Scotland, my land. The French will grovel to anyone with strength, but how will they believe our strength when we can not rule the whole of our own island?
[to Prince Edward] In the morning, I depart for France to press our rights there, and I leave you here to quell this little rebellion, understood? Is it? One day you will be a king. At least try to act like one.
I heard word in France where I was fighting to expand your future kingdom. The word, my son, is that our entire Northern Army is annihilated.
Who is this person that speaks to me as though I needed his advice?
I shall offer a truce and buy him off. But who will go to him? Not I. If I fell under the sword of that murderer, that might be my head in a basket. And not my gentle son. The mere sight of him would only encourage the enemy to take over the whole country. So whom do I send? Whom do I send?
Not the archers. My scouts tell me their archers are miles away and no threat to us. Arrows cost money. Use up the Irish. Their dead cost nothing.
Bring me Wallace. Alive if possible, dead... just as good.
The problem with Scotland, is that it is full of Scots.
If we can't drive them out, we will breed them out.
